In this tutorial, we'll explore CADMAPPER, a useful, free, online resource for generating 3D site models. Check out the website here...
Within a few minutes, select and generate a 3d model from any location on the planet. Export to AutoCAD, Rhino, Illustrator or SketchUp formats.
In this example, we'll use the SketchUp Format, to import geometry into ARCHICAD to continue working with shaping up and creating enhanced visuals and topography.
We'll also collect the Google Earth Satellite Imagery, and map that to the cadmapper topographic surface.
